A loan of $525 helped to purchase an auto rickshaw.


Shamim's story

Shamim is a 40-year-old woman living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of four children. As they are growing older, their needs are increasing as well.

Previously, her husband was driving an auto rickshaw that did not belong to him. He had to pay a daily fare to the owner of the auto rickshaw. Therefore he decided to buy his own rickshaw to increase his income and savings.

Shamim has some savings, but they are insufficient to buy a new auto rickshaw. That is why Shamim requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband could be able to buy a new auto rickshaw.

She hopes that this loan can bring happiness and joy in her family’s life and enable her to easily meet the daily household expenses.

Shamim is very glad after taking this loan and assures us that she will pay back the installments on time.
